Deanna: Headline Stirred Anger

Councilwoman Deanna Goodlander: This morning I had a non-resident attack me, holding the Press and pointing at the headline stating that it was unconscionable and arrogant to not put McEuen to the vote. He was so angry, he was literally shaking. Another person who moved here last year from California and is a resident also stated that it needed to be put to a vote and that is why she left California because taxes were too high and she didn't have a say. There was no discussion, just threats. This is the opening shot for next year's Council elections and I suspect that the article was prompted by the reporters close connections to some of those who plan to run.

Question: Would you want to be a public official and put up with the threats and anger that goes with the job?
